Is it another rumor or a leak? Let’s have a look at it.
Plenty of rumors about the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has already surrounded us. But, one of the most exciting thing people are waiting for is one of the accessories of Pixel. Google will come up with a wireless charging stand for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Google will name the wireless charger as “Pixel Stand”. MySmartPrice has already displayed a picture of it. Take a look at it:
We are still a few weeks away from the Google’s Pixel 3 event. But, this doesn’t mean we won’t find any leaks. So, what’s the latest leak? MySmartPrice displayed a press render of the rumored Pixel Stand.
Design and Features:
From the picture, the wireless charger seems to be powered by USB-C, which is great. We can expect the voltage and amperage ratings to be up to 18W of power. These ratings are sufficient to easily satisfy the wireless fast charging.
The image shows a power source of the dock via a hidden USB-C port at the bottom. Also, there’s a secret Google logo present at the bottom. The design and its appearance seem to be great and simple.
According to the dock’s design, you will charge your Pixel 3 by placing it upright against the stand. After connecting your Pixel 3 with the Pixel Stand, it will convert your phone into a smart display via a custom UI from Google.
May be the image is simply another rumor based on the last week’s leak. But, by far it seems to be real as the image appears to be. If the pricing is done right, the Pixel Stand wireless charger could be the really great feature for the wireless fast-charging with USB-C support.
According to the earlier leak, Google will probably add some features to go with the dock. Leaks suggest that Google will add support for accessing Google Assistant and some shortcuts like Play Music without unlocking the phone, displaying pictures as an ad hoc picture frame, and support for some notifications. Ultimately, Google can design it like a miniature Google Home.
The Pixel 3 event is on October 9th. So, we would probably get to know everything about the Pixel stand we are waiting for. By far, we could expect Google to unveil the Pixel Stand along with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in its event. If Google doesn’t announce about the Pixel Stand in the event, it will likely release it later. But, the release of the Pixel Stand is now confirmed.
